water to get some of that tear gas off. >> one guy was actually shot with a rubber bullet on live t there in phoenix. this is what preceded it, a nearly 90-minute speech by the president aimed at rallying his base. he defended his response to charlottesville and hinted at an eventual pardon for the local sheriff there. the president of criticized senators for failing to repeal obamacare. and local leaders across the country for trying to remove confederate statues. >> abc's danya bacchus joins us live this morning. what can you tell us so far? >> reporter: what we know right now, police have just removed the last protesters from this area. and for the most part, during the day, the protests here were largely peaceful. but it was after that rally ended that things got violent with police saying that people started throwing rocks and bottles at them. >> we condemn in the strong els possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence.
3:03 am
that's me speaking. >> reporter: president trump defending the way he handled charlottesville, where he seemed to equate self-proclaimed nazis to protesters. >> then i said racism is evil. did they report that i said that racism is evil? you know why? because they are very dishonest people. >> reporter: instead, lashing out at the press, despite criticism from members of his own party. he also renewed his push to repeal obamacare and hinted at a pardon of joe arpaio, who was convicted of criminal contempt for defying a federal judge's order to stop racial profiling in his roundups of immigrants. >>i think he's going to be just fine, okay? but i won't do it tonight, because i don't want to cause any controversy, is that okay? >> reporter: after the rally, supporters and protesters coming face-to-face. at one point demonstrations

3:05 am
standing outside surround being the convention center, waiting to go inside. but if you walk just a couple blocks away from the convention center, that's where you saw hundreds, maybe thousands of protesters standing outside, of course, coming face-to-face, having verbal altercations with some of the trump supporters. >> danya, the police were obviously worried. what seemed to be the trigger point that turned this from a peaceful protest into a violent one? and i just wonder, what was it like from your vantage point? >> reporter: you know, that is a good question, we were pretty far. for our safety, we were pretty far from the crowds here, but it seemed everything was peaceful. you did hear chanting while the rally was going on. but it was after the trump supporters started coming out of the rally, that's when things turned violent.
3:06 am
now i must say during the day, the tension was definitely there between trump supporters and those protesters. but you didn't think that it was going to turn violent. you know, they were exchanging words. we heard there were some minor scuffles, but nothing too major. i do believe it was after that rally when people started coming out, probably a little fired up, maybe from the president's speech that they came out, and words were exchanged between protesters and things became violent. >> it kind of turned, but it does appear as if calm has returned to the streets of phoenix where the president is spending the night. danya, thank you. we're going to turn to the relationship with mitch mcconnell. it is reportedly on extremely shaky ground. according to the "new york times," the two haven't spoken to each other in weeks and it says mcconnell has privately shown uncertainty that the president will be able to save his presidency. they refer to a phone call that turned into a profane shouting match when mcconnell accused the president of bungling the obamacare repeal debate. and there's no official word

3:32 am
the demonstrators that are left over. but earlier tonight there were thousands of demonstrators out here, and they had pretty much surrounded the convention center where the president was speaking. the police had a very good plan in place. they were able to separate the protesters from the trump supporters. right at the end, the trump supporters were coming out and demonstrators were able to get in their faces. there were some screaming matches, but we didn't witness any violence.nd, as police were trying to force everyone out, they did use tear gas. the police had gas masks and shields and they pretty much marched the rest of the demonstrators out of downtown phoenix. >> our thanks to tom llamas there. >> a busy night overnight there. there were no reports of injuries and only three arrests. inside the phoenix convention center, the president spoke for nearly 90 minutes. >> he started by going after the media. the president read excerpts of his statements about white supremacists. >> and he said the press had twisted what he said.
